The Birds and The Bees

A Courtship Comedy

July 25 – August 11, 2018

By Mark Crawford

This winning courtship comedy about chance encounters and fresh starts is a racy recipe for relentless laughter.

Sarah, a turkey farmer, has just left her husband and moved back home with her mother Gail, a long-divorced beekeeper who drowns her loneliness in the honey business. Both women are struggling to put their lives back in order when their hive is frequented by Ben, a strapping young grad student intent on studying the decline of the local bee population.

Throw in a meddlesome neighbour, a little internet dating, and a pair of tickets to the last-ever Turkey Days Dance, and love, lust, and poultry come together in a raucously funny comedy with a huge, honeyed heart.
